ABOUT YOUR VISIT
Preparation for your appointment
Our team of practitioners will perform a thorough evaluation to determine the underlying cause of your health concerns and create a personalized treatment plan to address those concerns. We offer a variety of treatment options to help achieve your health, lifestyle, and fitness goals.
The initial consultation will take place with one of our doctors, where they will sit down with you and discuss your past and current health history so they can better understand what is contributing to your condition. This consultation will also address your specific health concerns and how your condition is currently impacting your lifestyle. A discussion of your health, lifestyle, and fitness goals will be discussed so that an appropriate treatment plan can be constructed.
We will then move on to a through physical examination where we evaluate your posture, range of motion, and joint movement patterns to assess for dysfunctioning or malpositioned joints of the spine and limbs. In addition, we will perform orthopaedic and neurological testing to assess for joint and nervous system damage.
Once our doctor's have had an opportunity to study the information gathered during the initial consultation and exam, they will sit down and have a meeting called a 'Report of Findings'. This 'Report of Findings' will be a discussion of the findings from the initial exam and whether we can address your health concerns. If, for whatever reason, we feel you require additional diagnostic work or you are better served under someone else's care, we will make the necessary referrals so you can get the care you deserve. We will also use the 'Report of Findings' to further discuss your goals and various treatment options that can help you achieve those goals.
Our treatment plans are focused around the patient, their goals, and achieving functional correction. Once we have reached our treatment plan goals, our focus shifts towards maintaining your function so that you can lead a healthy lifestyle.
“19 years ago after 11 rounds of antibiotics in 11 months, Dr. Smith adjusted my son...he said Dr. Mith fixed my neck...he immediately drifted off to sleep in his car seat. No ear infections for an entire year after that. He had been on the short list for tubes in his ears. Dr. Smith's gentle touch solved my son's discomfort! #forevergrateful
True story...doesn't even mention how Dr. Smith improved my spinal mobility & alignment starting in 1990”

“My journey to optimal spinal health started with Dr. Allen Smith, associates and team on December 28, 2016. I had been chronic for a number of months that escalated to an acute condition just before Christmas. I hadn't ignored my pain, I was treated by a few practitioners, who were keeping me comfortable, but not fixing the problem. Dr. Smith performed a thorough examination & found multiple problems from head to toe. I had all confidence in him that his plan to wellness adjustments, massage & therapies would give me back a more healthier spine and a better frame of mind. I would say that Smith Family Chiropractic was my second home. The compassion, consideration, & empathy I received was paramount to my recovery. I would say the clinic is still my second home but I'm in a maintenance program that is working incredibly well for me. I extend a huge thank you to all involved in my journey to wellness, without you I know I wouldn't be where I am now.”
